Project: Ulm App
"ulm-app" is that the user has access to the most important information about the city of Ulm, always and everywhere. Data such as landmarks or information about agencies and administrative offices can be accessed directly from the iPhone. Even the city of Ulm car-park routing system is integrated and shows all available parking places in the Ulm parking garages.
The first version of the "ulm-app" starts out with three content modules. These are "attractions", "citizen services", and "parking services". A higher-level "city map" is also included as a navigation tool, and is used to display the contents of the individual modules arranged clearly on the map.
The city map:
The Ulm city map forms the basis for presenting the interesting features of Ulm It allows for spatial orientation – supported by displaying the user's current location on the map.
Whether you are interested in churches, buildings, museums, or gardens. The "attractions" module in Ulm provides a comfortable overview, and detailed information is available on every attraction.

All available parking spots in the Ulm parking garages are downloaded and displayed on the iPhone at 5-minute intervals.
